German scientists have developed what could be a solution to the chemical laden, non-biodegradable and possibly carcinogenic toxin known as….. plastic. Norbert Eisenreich from the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology in Pfinztal, Germany and his cronies have invented a substance known as Arboform, or to us right brained folks – liquid wood. Without getting knee deep in chemistry, the substance is a mixture of paper waste (real wood – lignin) and other natural goodies to create a granulate material that can be melted and molded.

“The final product can resemble highly polished wood or have a more matted finish and look like the plastic used in most household items.”

Aside from having less harmful chemicals, it is also quite biodegradeable and recyclable.
